Add the apples - add the BC cranberries, stir for 20 seconds - add the wine, the apple juice, the vinegar, the honey, simmer for 20 minutes or until the liquid is reduced by ½ and the cranberries swell and burst open, you want it to look a bit jammy - add the additional BC cranberries, add the salt, cook for 1 minute, remove from heat and cover the pot with a lid.
